Mix: Japan iTMS, iPod thief, iRiver H10, Apple China

Updated

Apple inadvertently sold albums on its new Japanese iTunes Music Store for a fraction of the intended 1,500-yen price. Due to an error, customers reportedly bought albums for 50 yen each.

One UK iPod thief made the mistake of bringing in the stolen device to a Nottingham-based Apple reseller where the iPod’s owner worked as the manager.

iRiver’s 5GB H10 beat out the 20GB iPod, iPod mini and iPod shuffle for Best MP3 Player Technology in the 2005 Semiconductor Insight Awards.

Amidst slow iPod and Mac sales in China, Apple has launched a “significant personnel reshuffle” among the management of its operations in the country.
